Comments: So far so good after three workouts. Much smoother than the old one. It has a intermitent clunking noise in the right rear area that I hope will go away as it is used a little more. I don't feel that I am able to stand upright and have to lean forward a little too much. That is harder on the back than I like but that maybe too will become less of a problem when I get more time on it. It seems to me that the stride length feature is backwards from what I experienced while running. I tend to take shorter strides and shift to the balls of my feet as the incline increased when running hills. The E7.1 lengthens the stride as it increases the incline. That just seems backwards to me. I enjoyed the workouts and will continue to see how it goes.
